Air fryer chicken is the perfect 20-minute meal you can make after a long day at work.
2. Whole Roasted Chicken
A whole roasted chicken is juicy, flavorful, and perfect for the whole family to enjoy. While a whole roasted chicken may look difficult to make, it is actually fairly simple. It is also a great dish to serve if you are having guests over for dinner since it is a beautiful centerpiece. Add some tasty sides such as potatoes, rice, or corn, and you have a meal for a king!
3. Crispy Fried Chicken
Crispy fried chicken is a classic that everyone enjoys. With many fried chicken variations, such as Japanese karaage and Nashville fried chicken, there is surely a fried chicken dish for everyone to enjoy. Korean fried chicken is also delicious if you enjoy saucy fried chicken. While you can try to make your fried chicken, it may be easier to dine out and avoid the oily mess in your kitchen.
Be Safe and Cook Safe
When cooking chicken, always test it with a thermometer to ensure that your meat is fully cooked. Always make sure to test in the thickest part of the meat. This will ensure that your delicious and heartwarming meal is ready to eat.
In a food handler course, you will learn the importance of avoiding cross-contamination and keeping raw chicken away from cooked foods. This includes keeping the chicken cooking utensils separate from others.
